For those who want to know what evolution and natural selection is, I found these on YouTube:
[b]What is Evolution?
What is Natural Selection?
For the creationists among us: you don't have to agree with this, but at least you'll understand how the rest of the world thinks about this subject.[/b]
Creationists do not deny that this type of biological change takes place. We also agree with the law of biogensis that states that a living organism is not generated by non-living matter but comes only from another living organism. And we agree that just like selective breeding of canines within that kind of animal can be done to produce varieties of canines, that it is also possible that adaptaion and natural selection may take place to produce varieties of a kind of bird.
However, it is abiogensis (spontaneous generation) and EVILUTION that we disagree with. Abiogensis is the opposite of biogensis and EVILUTION is the idea that all kinds and varieties of life forms were generated from the first life form on earth. We Christians believe there were many different kinds of life forms created by God and that they reproduce after their own kind. And even though there may be many varieties of organisms generated across many generations that they are limited to remain within the orginal created kind. That is, a dog always generates a variety of dog.
Some include the definition of EVILUTION in with Evolution. That is why we oppose Evolution because we are never clear as to what they mean by that term, since it means different things to different people.
Google (EVIL-LUTION - How Embarrassing) if you are still unclear as to what I mean by EVILUTION.
